The Japanese Whisky craze that’s swept the world? Blame it on Hibiki 17-Year-Old. That’s why you can’t find the stuff. It’s sold out not just in Japan, but globally. And it’s a harmonious blend that represents the brand name well. No surprise there.
 
Launched in 1973, Hibiki is the flagship blend hailing from Suntory. You won’t find age statements for it with the exception of this one, clocking in at the ripe old age of 17.

George
George,
Strong flavor with strong smoke. Compare to an Islay... Good undertones, just not a fan of smoke
 
Joe
Joe,
Outstanding whiskey more peppery than spiral indicated mellows quite nicely with drop of water. A luxury well worth the price!
 
Tong
Tong,
It’s like scotch candy.
 
Landis
Landis,
One of the greats! My first bottle lasted about a month. Had I known it's popularity was going to explode I would have bought more and put them under lock and key. It's a rare find at most bars in the US & Japan.
 
Jeanne
Jeanne,
One of my favorites. Splash of cold water works well with this.

Delicious!!
 
Anthony
Anthony,
nose: honey, wax, resin, oak, milk chocolate, lots of fruit, great nose palate: creamy mouthfeel, a little spice, lots of fruit, good amount of wood finish: long finish, slightly drying, light smoke, good fruit and raisin flavors overall: fantastic nose, but the palate and finish were a little underwhelming. not quite as bright and complex as the 12 year old. definitely delicious but if i had to reach for 1, it would be to the 12 year old

Satisfyingly sweet, slightly woody, finishing with a pleasant spicy tingle. Will drink again!
